Middlesex County Sheriff Mildred S. Scott "Holidays in July" Fundraiser

Credits: Middlesex County Sheriff's Office

MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - "Holidays in July" is a nonprofit organization started by the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office with the full support of Sheriff Mildred Scott in an effort to give back to the community.  The main goal of Holidays in July is to provide gifts for children and families in need during the holiday season.  The name Holidays in July came from the largest contributing fundraiser that is a basket auction held each year in July.

In November, the  Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office "Holidays in July" was able to sponsor a family in need during a very critical time.  Their youngest child has been battling hydrocephalus his entire life, as well as a slew of other medical issues that seemed to pop up along the way. "Holidays in July" was more than happy to help with a $500 Gift Card donation as well as some much-needed baby supplies.  On December 8, 2017 "Holidays in July" dropped off a large quantity of gifts to Robert Wood Johnson Children’s Hospital which will be distributed to patients during their holiday party.

On December 15,  "Holidays in July" handed out gifts to all of the children and families who will be in the hospital throughout the holiday season.  Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office Holidays in July was also fortunate enough to have extra toys to donate to Harmony Family Success Center in New Brunswick, so families that are victims of domestic violence are able to celebrate a happy holiday.

"Holidays in July" along with Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office and Sheriff Mildred Scott would like to thank everyone who made these amazing holiday donations possible.  Without the help of so many businesses, families, and individuals in an amazing community, none of this would have been possible.

For more information or details, please contact the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office at 732-745-3271.
